O.K. Tire increases supplier base

Jan. 29, 2002

O.K. Tire Stores Inc. has signed tire supplier agreements with Continental Tire Canada Inc. and Pirelli Tire Inc. The British Columbia-based tire franchiser also inked a deal with Interstate Batteries.

Nelson Gray, senior vice president of purchasing, export and development, said O.K. Tire felt the need to join forces with Continental, Pirelli and Interstate because of their increasing presence at the original equipment level.

O.K. Tire has 215 dealer-owned tire and auto service locations across Canada.
